Ford Motor Company today celebrated the official start of production for the highly anticipated, first-ever Ranger Raptor performance truck at our world-class Ford Thailand Manufacturing (FTM) facility in Rayong. The Ranger Raptor – Ford's first high-speed off-road performance truck built in Asia Pacific – was revealed to the public during the 2018 Bangkok Motor Show in March, where we began taking customer orders. Deliveries are scheduled to start in August.
Combining Ford Performance DNA with the Ranger’s renowned ‘Built Ford Tough’ character, the Ranger Raptor sets a new benchmark in high-speed, off-road pickup capabilities. “The Ranger Raptor is truly the ultimate Ranger. With its bold appearance and extreme, off-road performance features, the Ranger Raptor represents a new and distinctive breed of truck for the region,” says Yukontorn ‘Vickie’ Wisadkosin, president, Ford ASEAN.
Built with increased ride height and a wider track, the Ranger Raptor includes standard front and rear FOX shock absorbers, as well as a special Raptor steering wheel equipped with a magnesium paddle shifter to improve ride and handling for even the roughest terrains. A Terrain Management System (TMS) offering six different modes, including the highly anticipated Baja Mode, further guarantees high performance quality. Rounding all this off is its 2.0 liter Bi-Turbo diesel engine and 10-speed transmission, delivering a maximum of 213PS (157kW) of power and 500Nm of torque.
The Ranger Raptor is available in five colors – Lightning Blue, Race Red, Shadow Black, Frozen White and the all-new Conquer Grey.
